My husband gets a bit nervous when he goes grocery shopping with me. Seeing that number climb and climb as more and more items are scanned makes his heart race and his palms get a bit sweaty. So I knew that when we broke the $300 mark on our last big trip (emphasis on the word big - we were out of everything!) I had better make that last. And I did. We still have meat in the freezer as well as multiple lunches covered.
Here's some of what we had:
Chicken and Cashews in Lettuce Cups- though (whoops) I forgot to buy the lettuce, so we had this over brown rice with plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day.
Chicken Tortilla Soup- my mom's recipe. I'll share it soon. We had enough of this leftover to take to my folk's house for our traditional Christmas Eve Mexican feast.
Pepper Steak with mashed potatoes- I just use lots of cracked black pepper in place of the green peppercorns and leave out the cognac
Chicken nuggets and Mac and Cheese- only the best mac and cheese I've ever made!
Chicken Noodle Soup
Bean Burritos- with plenty more in the freezer
Pepperoni Pinwheels- a big hit with the picky 3 1/2 year old in my house!
